I didn't have this poem on Monday. It came to me on Tuesday and I'm posting it on Wednesday. I hope that's not too much of a stretch and that it will still get me a ticket on the Poetry Train.
Will you laugh with me in the early mist,
When the glow of dawn is only a hint?
Will you freshen my lips with your sweet kiss
That tastes of green tea and peppermint?
Will you wander a winding path with me,
When the sun is high and days are long?
Will you hold my hand, but not too tightly,
Fingers entwined, meshed palm to palm?
Will you mingle your life with mine
In the afterglow of the setting sun?
Will you speak idly with me in the moonshine,
As my soul and yours knit into one?
Will you dance with me in peace
Through the twilight of our lives?
Will you feel heart's tender release
In the symphony of all our nights?
